Are you being called by Penta Group, LLC?* Here’s what you need to know.

Over one-third of American consumers have had debts turned over to collection agencies. If you’re one of them and the company assigned to collect your debt is intrusive and malicious, here are some details that you should know.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

Legally, third-party debt collectors are not permitted to behave in a harassing and disruptive manner when trying to collect a consumer debt. Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, collection tactics like the following can get the offending company in serious trouble:

  • Calling before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Calling your friends, neighbors, and co-workers and telling them that you owe a debt
  • Reporting inaccurate information to the credit bureaus
  • Using profane and obscene language
  • Pretending to be police officers or federal agents
  • Telling you that you can be arrested or sent to jail
